How To Get Rid Of That Dam Windows 10 Upgrade Icon and Files
(If You Have Them On Your System)


Firstly Click the start menu and then select the Windows Update option.
Once on the Update page Select the view update history on the left hand side of the page.
At the top of the page you will see a "Review your update history" section within this section you will see the words "installed updates" highlighted in the text click on this.
Once you are in the Uninstall an Update screen scroll down until you find the entry which reads "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB3035583)" just click this then click Uninstall and there you go or rather there it goes.
After a restart the icon will be gone however to make sure it stays gone click the start menu and then again open Windows update look down any available Update for the file "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB3035583)"
Then right click it and select Hide Update then if you change your mind and want it back as you miss it so much you can just select restore hidden updates which is also available within the Widows update option.
So there you go peace of mind about that nasty little Windows 10 update

I have myself installed Windows 10 on my main unit and it seems to work fine.
No problems have raised their nasty little heads as of yet so all is good.
I do have it set up just like my Windows 7 Machine with the Gadgets showing on screen.
And  I must admit I like using it

It's untill August 2016 that we can upgrade for free, right?
I think I'll still wait a couple of months before making the decision...  sm08
